Movie Summary

Director:
Nicholas Jasenovec
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. Well, at the very least, she doesn't believe in fairy-tale love or the Hollywood mythology of love, and her own experiences have turned her into yet another modern-day skeptic. Charlyne and her friend (and director) Nicholas embark on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't understand: Love. Determined to find out if love truly exists, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children. Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Combining elements of storytelling, reality and fantasy, Paper Heart brings a fresh perspective to the modern romance and redefines the classic love story.

    There may be a fairly sharp line dividing those who find the whole delightfully odd, and those irked by what could be read as a faux childlike simplicity to the enterprise.
